LONDON, United Kingdom (The Adobo Chronicles, Berlin Bureau) – On June 12, Filipinos will celebrate the 120th anniversary of their country’s independence — not from the U.S., but from Spain.
While nationwide activities have been planned to commemorate the occasion, BBC has scheduled a marathon interview tonight with top Filipino politicians and celebrities, including those who have been disgraced.
The live interview will feature:
Ousted Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno
About-to-be-ousted Vice President Maria Leonor (Leni) Robredo
Disgraced Opposition Congressman Maria Gary Alejano
Desgraciada television host Maria Kris Aquino
Displaced Rappler CEO Maria Ressa
If there will be enough time during the marathon broadcast, Sackur may also interview Maria Juana Change, Maria Agot Isidro and Maria Raissa Robles.
Ginoong Maria! (Hail Mary!) Grab your popcorn. It’s going to be a tsunami of a live broadcast from London!
